Question about 1998 Honda XR 400R
Check to see if you have spark. Put a plug in the cap and touch the cylinder , kick it over to see if the plug is sparking. I kick mine 2 or 3 times to prime the cylinder holding decompression lever in. If it pops on full choke but does not start I go to half choke. If it does not start after 3 or 4 kicks , then I turn off the choke and kick it over 5 or 6 times with the decompression lever pulled to clear it. Then I will kick with no choke or half choke. Honda's are notorious for being cold blooded so when it starts let it warm up and do not be afraid to drive a short distance on half choke till the motor warms up a little.
When the machine is hard to start after sitting I usually start by removing the carburetor and shooting carburetor cleaner through the jets and passageways.I have always found my 96 xr400 to be a dependable starter with fresh gas and a clean carburetor. If it is flooded use the decompression lever to clear the cylinder.
